Oh, I do have fun with the jewellery. I make my own coloured porcelain beads and kiln-fired glass cabochons for my necklaces. I also bend and case harden the copper features. I usually add a few other components I didn't make myself, such as chain, clasps, and Swarovski crystals.
No copper on this one, but seed beads are strung with my own beads, and woven erratically through black steel chain. Symmetry is over-rated.
I do like to use greens with the copper. It's only natural.
And here? All tied up, that orange just needs to be restrained somehow.
